THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: CÉSAR E. CHÁVEZ, DANNY ROMERO’S POETRY, DON FELÍPE ON A MORE PERFECT UNION, SAL BALDENEGRO ON WHOSE GOVERNMENT IS IT? JULIO MEDINA’S SERENDIPITY AND, OF COURSE, ANGELA ORTIZ!
This week’s Latinopia video features Sacramento poet and novelist Danny Romero reading his poetry at the 2010 Flor y Canto Literary Festival convened by Michael Sedano at the University of Southern California. Our blogger Don Felípe De Ortego’s Bravo Road examines recent events pertaining to the shootings of African Americans and Latinos by police in the context of the promise of America per the founding fathers. Another pesado piece of writing by the eminent scholar and perveyor of Chicano life.
Sal Baldenegro examines the ploy by the mayor and city council of Tucson to obfuscate and keep city records hidden from the public–and it’s not just Sal saying this, it’s the judge in the case!
Julio Medina returns with his serendipitous photos–this month “Suicide” Is he joking or not?
And the Angela’s Photo of the Week is “Morning View.”
Enjoy your Latinopia week!
